Q: Can someone explain the different levels of paint gloss to me?

I've read that different types of paint gloss should be used in different rooms and in different applications in the same room. Can someone explain these levels to me? I guess there are six levels of sheen: flat, matte, satin, eggshell, semigloss, and gloss. What do these different terms mean? When and where should each of these gloss types be used?
